What investment services and advice can you provide me?
We offer investment management services to retail investors by providing ongoing advice based on the client’s individual needs. When we offer investment management, it is either through a wrap fee program sponsored by us (“Laffer Tengler Wrap”) or a wrap fee program sponsored by another firm. A wrap fee is a single fee that covers both asset management services and other services such as the execution of the transactions entered in your accounts. The brochure you receive will explain services included in the wrap fee. Some retail investors choose to maintain accounts at custodians where we do not have a wrap fee arrangement and are charged separate transaction fees in addition to our advisory fee.

If you participate in either the Laffer Tengler Wrap program or a wrap fee program sponsored by another firm, we will recommend specific investment strategies to implement in your portfolio. Third party money managers may be recommended depending on your needs. As part of our standard service we are responsible for performing periodic reviews and consulting with you at least annually. If you retain us within the Laffer Tengler Wrap Program, upon your request, we will assist you in formulating a plan to meet your long-term financial goals and help you monitor your progress along the way.

When we provide investment management, our services are offered on a discretionary basis. “Discretionary” authority is a type of authority that grants us the full authority to buy, sell, manage, reinvest or otherwise effect investment transactions involving your assets without consulting with you first. Discretionary authority is granted by you as part of the agreement you sign with our firm. We do not limit our advice to specific securities. Depending on your financial circumstances, we may recommend convertible securities, ETFs, common stocks, bonds, preferred stocks, and other securities.

We typically require a minimum portfolio size of $2,000,000 to establish a relationship with us or a $100,000 account minimum if you use a third-party wrap fee program. We may raise or lower the minimum account size at our sole discretion.

Additional information about services provided are available in our ADV Disclosure Brochure (Form ADV Part 2A, Items 4, 7, 13 and 16; or Form ADV Part 2A Appendix 1 Wrap Fee Program Brochure, Items 4 and 9) and on our website at
